A more sustainable business law meeting:
Contributed by: Paulette L. Stenzel
Description: The Midwest Academy of Legal Studies requires that each paper presenter bring twenty-five copies of his or her paper for distribution at our annual meeting in Chicago. This year I asked for and was given permission to post my paper on this website instead of bringing copies. I handed out my business card with this website address instead of the paper. That saved 625 pieces of paper. (15 pages x 25 copies.)
Sustainable Christmas Greetings
Contributed By: Paulette L. Stenzel
Description: For those friends for whom I have email addresses, I am sending an emailed Christmas letter instead of spending money and using resources to send a card and letter via U.S. mail. I am contributing at least $2 for each emailed letter to KIVA http://kiva.org to sponsor two micro-loans, one each in Peru and in Nicaragua. If I send more than fifty cards letters and cards, I will sponsor a third loan. This saves resources (paper and energy) and the money is circulated in a sustainable way. When I am repaid, I can lend the funds to someone else through KIVA.
